Lintian Reports

E missing-dependency-on-libc

All reports of missing-dependency-on-libc for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The listed file appears to be linked against the C library, but the package doesn't depend on the C library package. Normally this indicates that ${shlibs:Depends} was omitted from the Depends line for this package in debian/control.

All shared libraries and compiled binaries must be run through dpkg-shlibdeps to find out any libraries they are linked against (often via the dh_shlibdeps debhelper command). The package containing these files must then depend on ${shlibs:Depends} in debian/control to get the proper package dependencies for those libraries.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 8.6.1 (Generating dependencies on shared libraries) for details.

Severity: serious, Certainty: possible

Check: binaries, Type: binary, udeb
